Do I Ever Hate Big Rigs
So, I managed to get out of work early yesterday. I decide to take a ride along Route 2A outside Boston. For those who've never been, it's a nice little jaunt along some historical sites in Concord and Lexington, 40-50mph speed limit and some good turns and dips.
Of course, as soon as I get on there, a giant 18 wheeler pulls out in front of me. This is a one lane state highway, and almost no passing areas. 24 miles an hour. I think I went through every curse in the book about that guy before he finally realized he wasn't on a damn highway and pulled off to go to Route 2 proper.
It's funny, that's the first time I've felt stressed out and angry on my bike since I got it...to be honest, it was like how I am almost everytime I drive my car around this city. It's one of the reasons I got the bike, so I could enjoy the roads again.
Cursed big rigs...back road highways are for us, not you!
